There is no quick and easy transfer.
It take 60 minutes to capture 60 minutes of LP or tape music.
You connect the source, via cable, to the "Line In" connector on the sound card. Cable available at Radio Shack.
You play the LP or tape and use recording sofware on the computer to capture the music.
Here are two sets of instructions I found on the CNET site:
I have a lot of old vinyl and cassettes that I want to transfer to digital format on my computer. Since the source of these formats are analog, and the typical line-in on a sound card is analog, I am wondering how I can best tranfer the audio data to digital. My stereo receiver does not have a digital output, only inputs. I guess what I am asking is for the "best" means to convert old format audio to digital and what hardware/software should I be looking at? Particularly the sound card and the proper input to the PC for capturing the digital conversion.
